"Waiting On" Wednesday: What Women Want


 Have you entered my giveaway of THE UNDERSIDE OF JOY?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

What Women Want
By Fanny Blake
Publication Date: June 19

From Amazon:

Bea, Kate and Ellen have always known that they can depend on each other no matter what. But when Ellen, a widow who has devoted herself to her children and her art gallery for the last ten years, falls head over heels in love with Oliver, the long-term bonds of these three friends is put to the test.  Bea and Kate are driven away from their friend and from each other as they react differently to this unfamiliar stranger in their midst.  What Women Want is a novel about love and life and the challenges of female friendship that face women as they try to decide what they want—and come to realize what they really need.

Unfortunately, this is a scenario that is all too familar to many women...I would be curious to see how it all turns out.

Not my usual read but it's an interesting read. It's something that happens in real life.

I think women's relationships are always interesting to read about.

Jen H said...

Sounds like a great novel about friendship among long time girl friends. It's always interesting when a new person is introduced to the mix. Especially a man, and the relationship that takes attention away from the friends. ~ Jen @ A Book and a Latte - My WoW pick!

First I have heard of this book. It sounds kinda cool too. Sometimes I am looking for a change of pace in my reading. That's why I love WOW's because I see a variety of gr8 books that I can jot down and check out later on.
